There have always been devices to stream content from your mobile phone or tablet to another device, but rarely do you really see one that goes in the other direction. Wirelessly pulling files from your computer to your mobile phone isn’t something that is easily done, but HYPER might have something here that will make it a cinch. Their new HYPER iUSBport Mini promises to allow for easily being able to access content from your iOS, Android, or any Wi-Fi enabled device. That means you should be able to stream movies or grab photos from your computer or external drive and access them from your mobile device.
What’s neat though is that the iUSBport Mini does not require an existing Wi-Fi network. Instead, it creates its own wireless network in which you can connect to from your device, up to 3 devices at once. You will however need to download an app to your device in order to connect to the iUSBport Mini.
iUSBport Mini is now available from http://www.hypershop.com/HyperDrive/iUSBport-Mini/ at around $89.95.
